in a little bit, but we asked sort of the remaining undecided or sort of soft romney/obama voters, we asked them, tell us what is a hesitation you have about romney becoming president, what is a hesitation you have about obama becoming president? almost universally the hesitations on romney, even among voters who clearly sound like they're eventually going to support romney, is the idea that he's out of touch, that he seems to not understand what it's like to be a middle class american. and that's where, you know, this 47% alone wouldn't have had this kind of resonance if it hadn't been what has been a i would argue a six-month campaign by the obama folks starting with tax returns. frankly, you had the republican primary candidates did it to him. you throw it all together, defining him as the out of touch rich guy. rick santorum did it during the primaries. the obama campaign has been doing it, and then 47% comes along and simply amplifies the narrative in a third party verification-type way, and you put the whole suit together, and that to me ishurdle right now for romney, the idea is he i
obama can't stand the president. >>> and democrats with a victory for voters in pennsylvania, but republican voter fraud is getting swept under the rug here in colorado. tonight the latest on the rnc's voter fraud scandal. >>> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. we're coming to you tr from denver, colorado. the first presidential debate one day away. this is the romney pre-game show. will mitt romney be held accountable for lies and distortions about president obama's record? we got a sneak preview of what happens when mitt romney is forced to tell the truth. a fox affiliate here in denver asked romney to explain what paul ryan could not, how he plans to pay for $5 trillion tax cut by only eliminating deductions. >> there's an option. you could say everybody is going to get up to a deduction and you could use your home mortgage deduction or others, health care deduction and fill that bucket, if you will, the $17,000 bucket that way and higher income people might have a lower number. >> at least the plan has a name. it's the bucket plan. mitt romney will cap deducti
. this is good news for president obama as early voters favor democrats. first day voter turnover in lucas county doubled that in 2008. of the 928 voters, there were 696 democrats, 40 republicans, 192 with no affiliation. michelle obama fired up voters in cincinnati today. she warned supporters the fight for ohio is not over. >> early voting starts today. today. we need you to sign up to make phone calls, to knock on doors, to help get the vote out. but more importantly, we need you to talk to everybody you know. remind them what's at stake in this election. >> shortly after that, the obama campaign tweeted out this photo of a marching band rallying voters in cincinnati. president obama's campaign is simply outworking the romney camp in ohio. there are 96 field offices compared to 36 for romney. 38% of the ohio vote was cast early before the election in 2008. and this year it could reach 40%. republicans have done everything in their power to block the vote in ohio, but thanks to solid work from the obama campaign, their efforts are failing early on. the latest quinnipiac poll shows obama with a
. president obama is bolling green focussing on middle class voters. >> when my opponent said we should just let detroit go bankrupt. don't move. folks, that -- that -- that would have meant walking away from an industry that supports one in eight ohio jobs. >> the difference between me and president obama is i know what to do, and i will do what it takes to get this economy going. >> ohio voters say the economy matters to them. romney argues his business experience makes him the best choice, but latest polls suggest voters think mr. obama would do a better job. a cnn average of four recent ohio polls found 51% of voters support president obama. 44% favor mitt romney. one of romney's events wednesday was a manufacturing round table with business leaders and tv host micro. he's a man known for taking on tough jobs. in ohio he's overshadowed by the two other men that's even tougher. in washington i'm emily smith. >>> and for some more numbers, campaigned two on university poll says president obama was wide lead over mitt romney in the swing states of ohio, florida, and pennsylvania. in this ca
own against warren. and for him to be successful, he must convince obama voters in massachusetts and obama is expected to win by double digits up there, to also vote for him, a republican. susan milligan is a contributing editor to "u.s. news & world report," and michael steele is the former chairman of the republican national committee, also an msnbc political analyst. i'm going to try to look at this down the middle. i saw the whole debate today. i was fascinated. i think david gregory did a hell of a job. like a referee in a boxing match. each candidate had a tough moment or two. here is warren tripped up, i think, when asked to name a republican she could work with. just name a senator or any bunch of them. here is what she said. let's watch. >> can you name some republicans in the senate today that you are able to work with on big issues, substantive issues, that the country faces? >> i think probably richard lugar would be one that would come to mind. >> he's not going to be there. >> he's not going to be there. >> who else could you name, senator? >> that is a problem. let
is a universely aclaimed public speaker. voters already believe by a 25 point margin that president obama is likely to do a better job in the debates, given president obama's natural gifts and extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the debate stage. this morning, the obama campaign countered with its memo. senior adviser david axelrod. we expect mitt romney to be prepared disciplined and aggressive debater. governor pawlenty said he is as good as it gets in debating. maybe this is why the romney campaign predicted he will turn in a campaign changing performance such as ronald reagan's in 1980. here is the truth about obama and romney, neither a stellar debater. obama didn't shine in the democratic primary debates, biden won them. that's why obama picked biden. candidate obama had a tendency to ramble in the debates, got better during mccain one on ones. while romney did well in this season's gop debates, had rough performances, bet you $10,000 he did. romney performances, the unspoken body language that the camera captured, they were brutal against ted kennedy. ivy league will enj
, president obama is about 70% in the question of which candidate jewish voters are likely to vote for in the election were to the t and that's ahead of what they were in the election in 2008. that's because, thomas, one thing is that on domestic issues, whether it's making investments in education, health care, research, head start, civil work, standing up for people who have no voice. sh a very important season for jus and a time in which we focus on the importance to repairing the world, mitt romney and the republicans are wrong on every issue that matters to jus domestically and we are making sure that jewish voters understand that president obama has a stellar record on israel. an, in fact, i would just push back a little bit and say that p.m. netanyahu and president obama have a very close working relationship, that they meet and talk regularly and they have on k consistently said that he stood by president obama. i think the record is very clear and there are israeli leaders across the political spectrum in israel who has consistently said that israel has no greater friend t
-up popping place, sort of like if food places offered voting. obama voters asked for a pop-up voting place at the university of northern iowa. they had the first lady at the go vote now event. they had the first lady speak and they had the university marching band lead people from the audience of the first lady's speech directly to the voting booth. don't you always wish voting was like this? voting needs more drum majors, more cow bell, more skinny kid in the front wearing a xylophone and playing the keys off of it. i want voting to always have this happening. the obama folks are ahead in the polls. they are trying to reap tangible benefits from this. right now follow the marching bands to the polls. the romney folks are behind. they don't want america to vote right now. if america went and voted right now, nate silver says president obama would win by 138 electoral vote. there are no marching bands leading people to the polls from the romney side right now. that is not what they need. what the romney side needs is they'd still have to persuade people that mitt romney is the guy to vote f

or beating mitt romney among voters over 60. that's the very group that is the most skeptical of barack obama. they have been the hardest group for him to win over, but he is now winning them over and there's only one reason for that, it is medicare. and, you know, as much as i totally understand what howard fineman was saying, there was no other reason to pick paul ryan other than his budget. paul ryan was not the governor of a state, he can't deliver his home state from what we're seeing -- >> we know that now. >> you picked him because you wanted to tell the right we're going to take your ideology and take it to main street and then he didn't want to do it. he is trying to hide -- >> let me -- now you got into a little thought here about howard's thinking, my question to you, and it's a tough one, didn't he know that if he bought ryan, he was buying his deal? he was buying his cuts in medicare, his substitution plan for a voucher system? didn't he know that? how could he not know that? he's a dealmaker. >> he immediately distanced himself. mitt romney immediately distanced himself from the
on the presidential election. there is some evidence that a lot of these people are obama voters who are marginal democrats and may just click down the line, don't follow politics that closely and may vote for warren because she is a democrat. no matter how much brown does as an individual in the campaign, the obama effect in massachusetts could swamp his efforts. >> what have you seen, the tone of people as they are paying attention and watching this? there was some argument on the street. >> there was a lot of attention and a lot of, i would say, hypersupporters going at each other before the debate. i was able to spend considerable time with both candidates over the weekend, seeing them on the campaign trail. what is so striking is that both seem to be well regarded. scott brown is described as the most popular in massachusetts. elizabeth warren, one issue for her, massachusetts never elected a woman to the senate or to become governor. each has beluilt-in challenges. >> thank you both. i appreciate it. >>> we have new national numbers out today on the presidential race. quinnipiac university

with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically gotten used to the economy as the status quo. >> today in his weekly web address, lynn, the president blaming congress for not helping the economy. take a listen. >> last week, mortgage rates were at historic lows. but instead of helping more and more hard-working families take advantage of those rates, congress was away on break. instead of worrying about you, they'd already gone home to worry about their campaigns. >> lynn, is that a strategy that works? i mean, is there something to what he's arguing, regarding low mortgage rates and housing reform? >> well, he's doing, i believe, a preemptive strike in advance of the debate, where the focus is going to be on domestic issues and the economy. now, what he said is true. ever
of the demographics is that barack obama is now tied with mitt romney or beating mitt romney among voters over 60. that's the very group that is the most skeptical of barack obama. they have been the hardest group for him to win over, but he is now winning them over and there's only one reason for that, it is medicare. and, you know, as much as i totally understand what howard fineman was saying, there was no other reason to pick paul ryan other than his budget. paul ryan was not the governor of a state, he can't deliver his home state from what we're seeing -- >> we know that now. >> you picked him because you wanted to tell the right we're going to take your ideology and take it to main street and then he didn't want to do it. >> let me -- now you got into a little thought here about howard's thinking, my question to you, and it's a tough one, didn't he know that if he bought ryan, he was buying his deal? he was buying his cuts in medicare, his substitution plan for a voucher system? how could he not know that? he's a dealmaker. >> he immediately distanced himself. mitt romney immediately dista
and white college graduates and working class voters voted in 2008. minorities 80/20, obama. white college graduates a four-point deficit, and the right hand column you see how much demographic change we have just in the last four years based on current population survey eligible voters. according to be sedated, we've seen an increase of three points in the share of eligible voters were minority's and a decrease of three points in the share of voters who are white noncollege or working class. that's quite a lot of change in a short period of time. let's just think a bit about what these figures mean, the figures from 2008 and the figures for today. even though it looks like the minority vote usher should go up, let's just say it does not. but let's say that obama gets again the 80% of the minority vote he got in the 2008. let's get nearly loses white college graduates by four-point. it means that you actually be competitive in this race, mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class in this election. that's youth turnout doesn't change
, complacent, dissatisfied 2008 obama voters to, well, listen. >> sorry, my friend but there is no time to snore. an out of touch millionaire has just declared war on schools, the environment, unions, fair pay. we are all on our own if romney has his way. he is against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. i strongly suggest that you wake the -- up. >> remember the heidi game, people. this election is not over. wake up. joining me, gwen moore, ari melber and brentin mock and dave zirin. the heidi game reminds us it is not over until it is over. despite these great polls, what are we looking at in the next month? >> i thought you were going to go with samuel jackson, i want the snakes off the plane and i would like the superpacs being the snakes. we could do a lot of samuel l. jackson. >> i will strike down with great vengeance and furious anger those who will attempt to destroy my brothers. >> a lot of you know my name is the lord when i lay my vengeance upon thee. that should be obama's slogan for the first debates. >> they don't know the second hour of nhp is a drinking game. >> congr
president obama by 14 percentage points among rural voters in nine swing states. now republicans have traditionally done well in less populated areas. in 2008, then candidate obama narrowed that gap and won 44% of the rural vote overall. in 2004, senator john kerry captured only 40%. joining me to discuss this and much more, what if anything president obama can do to connect with rural voters is chris lehane. he runs the democratic strategic communications firm. it's fun to have you here. talk about the rural voters. is this something that the president should be concerned about and since mitt romney was basically dissing 47% of america, including rural voters, isn't that something that's an opportunity for the opportunity. as you touched on historically, the rural voters have not supported democrats in the last six, seven presidential cycles. a lot of that's for cult you really voting reasons voting on their pocketbook, but there's a variety of issues that go into that historical pattern. these voters obviously are potential targets for the president. i think they'll target latino, w

in iowa thursday morning and voters lined up to cast their ballots. president obama's team is feeling confident that most of these early votes will be for the president. >> this many people this early in the morning really shows that there's strong support here in iowa for the president. >> reporter: but on thursday both candidates were in another battleground state. >> howis it going, virginia beach? >> reporter: president obama talked to voters in southern virginia. >> growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> reporter: while mitt romney talked with veterans about looming cuts to the military in the northern part of the state. >> 136,000 jobs will be lost in virginia as a result of this move. >> reporter: the candidates will spend time this weekend preparing for next week's debate ahead of the faceoff in denver, both campaigns seemed to be trying to lower expectations. >> we are looking forward to the debates as you know and there have been difficulties and you have to give the president some credit for the campaign they're running. >> reporter: romney's
of minority voters. the minority population as shooting a very rapidly. it is more favorable to barack obama. with that in mind, let's look at the particular swing states that are in play. maybe more so than any other state, ohio was supposed to be the fulcrum on which this election might rest. it was believed to be accessible for mitt romney and that obama could hold. he is only four electrical vote s short. this is not happening. at this point is option a four or five point lead. if you look at some of the data, you see the worst group for obama in 2008 was the white working class. his hope is that he would be able to expand the marching quite a bit. you think it would not have been that part of a cell. it has been hard hit economically. a lot of ticked off factory workers. you think it would have been an ideal place. this is not to not to be the case. bromley is not anywhere close to driving up the margin among white working-class voters. he is at best a few points later. he is doing no better among white college graduates. that is one reason why the state is looking pretty favorable to b
insulting obama voters? >> everyone is stupid and you're on food stamps. >> i'm going to break with tradition and agree with him in one regard in that a lot of working class white voters who never thought they would end up on food stamps who are not your standard white folks that are on food stamps but the working class ones who found themselves because of the recession losing their job thanks to a displaced factory and thanks to the bain capitals of the world found themselves on food stamps for the first time are getting off food stamps and recognize the importance of government in places like ohio and florida. >> stephanie: you need to pay attention when road flare mary calls. it is only the blacks and their escalades that are using too many of the food stamps. >> they can't have an escalade if they're not paying for stuff with food stamp because black people aren't allowed to make that much money. >> stephanie: her son who can't get food stamps, we suggested he date a black girl. >> or he could stop being a lazy
thursday morning and voters lined up to cast their ballots. president obama's team is feeling confident that most of these early votes will be for the president. >> this many people this early in the morning really shows that there's strong support here in iowa for the president. >> reporter: on thursday, both candidates were in another battleground state. >> how's it going, virginia beach? >> reporter: president obama talked to voters in southern virginia. >> growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> reporter: while mitt romney talked with veterans about looming cuts to the military in the northern part of the state. >> 136,000 jobs will be lost in virginia as a result of this move. >> reporter: the candidates will spend time this weekend preparing for next week's debate, ahead of the face-off in denver, both campaigns seem to be trying to lower expectations. >> we are looking forward to the debates, as you know. there have been difficulties and you have to give the president credit for the campaign they're running. >> reporter: romney's staff issued a talk
at how maryland voters are viewing the presidential election. voters here prefer -- president obama 56% 2 mitt romney, 34%. but it looks like there is more bad news for mitt romney in the state of ohio. steve? >> no republican has ever won the white house -- 9, ever -- without winning the state of ohio. mitt romney trailed by less than one point in ohio earlier this month. in the latest ohio poll, romney trails by 10. he is wrapping up his bus tour of ohio, a blue-collar state that is a must win for mitt romney. >> there is dignity and honor in good, hard work. >> but ohio may be moving out of reach for romney. even with the help of the ohio native jack nicklaus who says he has laid off workers from his golf business. >> we cannot afford four more years like the last four years. >> romney cannot afford more polls like today. after he was caught on tape disparagingly 47% of americans who pay no income tax, who, he said a " feel like victims," romney is trailing president obama by 12% and pennsylvania, nine points in florida, 10 in ohio. >> i have been across this country. my heart aches fo
-hand figures, the likely voters, obama is actually, according to the stated doing and little bit bitter to follow the better among white college graduates voters that he did in 2008. was and then by 13 points which is actually somewhat better. so remember when i was saying about the elan is a large margin . he is not anywhere close. that is the bottom line. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney, a margin of 22 points. but no word you see these outsize marches that he really needs to win the election given how obama is doing among minority voters but given how he appears to be holding the support and then some among white college graduates voters. that is where we are now in the national picture. of course as we know this election, this oddly enough not decided by the popular vote. that would be a silly and weird thing to do. instead we have this electro the system. so in of the story. that means that the election really comes down to typically the outcomes and a number of different battle ground states. this is the battle ground as we laid it out in our first, three docket
from three key swing stas twiai roncerns inside the romney campaign. of likely voters, president obama now leads mitt romney by 10 percentage points in the state of ohio. that's a doue digit lead in the state no republican has lost and then won the presiden. thpresen ne psn florida. that is absolutely a must win state for romney. mr. obama now opening up a 12 point lead in pennsylvania according to this poll. that's a state, though, republicans have all but written off. those numbers echo polling from the "shington post" which gav thsi aht pnt advantage in ohio but p him up only four points in the state of florida. ohio in particular shaping up as a critical battleground. mitt romney spending his third consecutive day there. president obama will be in the state this morning. today's "new york times" reporting that aidot romney say the republican candidate and paul ryan will campaign together now much more often in the coming weeks. according to the report, the move underscores concerns that mr. romney is not generating enough excitement on his own and need mrs. ryan t fire up the pport
? >> well, wolf, a senior obama official explained to me that voter targeting is a top priority and they're focusing their efforts on trying to convince voters in these key toss-up states to support the president. and that includes an emphasis on social media. >> both of the candidates, mark, were in virginia today. so they're focusing a lot on this key battleground state. what about the impact of facebook, social media in virginia? >> well, wolf, let's take a quick look and see when the candidates were mentioned on facebook in virginia. 56% of these mentions were about president obama while 44% were about mitt romney according to facebook insights. and then take a look at this one public post, wolf. it's from a romney supporter in another battleground state of ohio calling on virgin yans to support romney. john logan writes, come on, virginia, you made a mistake and voted for obama last time. let's correct that and vote this time for mitt romney. by and large, wolf, we want to emphasize we don't know the overall sentiment of all these individual posts. but we do know who america's talki
on msnbc. and president obama is doing poorly with white working class voters in just about every region of the country except the midwest. so why in the midwest is his message winning in the demographics and failing elsewhere? >> what we're seeing in the polls in the south where president obama is very unpopular, voters overall traditionally don't like him. outside of that, they're doing pretty well. the margins are pretty well. the key thing in those polls also you saw is right now, karen's right. the election is not over. john said the same thing. that said obama's ahead by nine points in ohio. i mean romney's going to have to convince them that they're telling pollsters to change their mind and come back to either undecided and then to romney, which is really challenging this late in the game. >> 41 days to go. we shall see. thanks to all of you, all three of you for sticking around for our abbreviated power panel. again, my thanks. so back with new efforts to vote this election. the congressional black caucus has launch add new campaign at informing voters on what they need and need
president obama is very unpopular, voters overall traditionally don't like m. outside of that, they're doing pretty well. the marginsre pretty well. the key thing in those polls n'rit. s i r no the election is not over. john said the same thing. that said obama's ahead by nine points in ohio. i mean romney's going to have to convince them that they're telling pollsters change their mind and come bac eruncide and then to romney, which is really challenging this late in the game. >> 41 days to go. we shall see. thanks to all of you, all three of you for stickin around for our abbreviated power panel. agai my anks. so bac withewor t v this election. the congressional black caucus has launch add new campaign at informing voters on what they need and need to do to cast their ballots. andt's not oy vot i. me 16 people are purging people from their voter polls. a member of the congressional black caucus, sir, it's goodo have you here. explain to us more about the efforts and your efforts to get voters ready f these new laws atou d exactly to explain the needs what voters really need when they show
voters that obama is leading by eight a point. if you look the averages, that is high relative to the average. the averages from about four points. probably up by five points, this is within the averages. the overall topline, look at the black black at the margin, 91 points, that seems identical with obama's margin in 2008. seventy-two among hispanics and it is not that far off. also 22 for romney. what it means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority again it's actually quite plausible based on this and other data. that looks like what it's going to get to. if he doesn't get 80, he will get 7 meters 79. as you can see by the right-hand figures, obama is actually doing better -- which is actually somewhat better than he did in 2000 and one he lost them by 18 points. remember what we said about the outlandishly large margin that mitt romney needs to be with white working-class voters. he is not anywhere close. that is the bottom line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney or a margin of 22 points. nowhere do you see
